Message from Safety Office - Wind

All Fire/EMS Personnel,

Dangerously low wind chills are expected  over the next few days.  Protect yourself and patients from frostbite/hypothermia by covering exposed skin (hats, gloves, blankets, etc.) 

Also, sustained wind speeds will increase to 15-20 MPH this evening through late tomorrow afternoon (1/9/15).  Factor this into ALL operational considerations (ventilation, fire spread, mode of attack, rehab).

Stay safe,

Sayshan L. Conver-White, Safety Battalion Chief
Prince George's County Fire/EMS Dept.
Risk Management & Safety Office
